Game developers, novelists, and screenwriters often need to create fictional countries for their stories. Using fictional places isn’t just for fantasy or sci-fi stories, either. Sometimes, political issues or controversial story elements could make it a good idea to use a fictional country in place of a real one.
If you’re struggling to come up with fictional country names, our random country name generator can help! This tool uses a custom algorithm trained on actual country names around the world. Using this database, it creates seemingly-real country names that are safe to use in your stories. Don’t worry about royalties or accreditation, as these names are all available to you royalty-free and without cost.
